Abstract
SA Photonics is pleased to propose the development of the Topaz modulated optical source for underwater sensing and communication. The unit will emit mulitple watts of blue light in the 450-460 nm for deep water transmission and on key Fraunhofer lines for solar noise reduction. The unit supports modulation of up to 10 GHz and can emit energies in excess of 1 mJ. High wall plug efficiency is attained with SA Photonics innovative pumping archtecture.
